Check the litter box for `man bits'.

I say he's a big pussy. And the guy is kinda wimpy, too.

Wouldn't the tiger eat the lamb? How do they fit on it? Wouldn't it make more sense for the lamb and the man to ride the tiger, it being the stronger of the three animals?

oh, lam.
2003-01-13 03:47:44 PM  
Mmmm, lamb.
2003-01-13 03:48:31 PM  
Maybe they went for a walk?
2003-01-13 03:48:41 PM  
"Yesh...toight....toight like tiger."

Man, for a second, I was hoping to read a story about some hot beastiality 3 way action. So misleading.

Did they all lie down on Broadway?
2003-01-13 03:53:44 PM  
Baby, I got a tiger in my
pants and he's ready to roar!
2003-01-13 03:54:51 PM  
i think that cop from tennessee shot the tiger, and the family for suspicion of his jeep theft.
2003-01-13 03:54:56 PM  
Little lam, who made thee?
2003-01-13 03:57:06 PM  
Just read the headline, but I flashed on Sambo.

Was William Blake available for comment?
2003-01-13 03:58:58 PM

Nice headline, nice comments. You boys should be proud.

Is there any way mods can actually PROOFREAD these titles? :P

Or maybe correct them once their posted?

I wish the poster was listed too so we would know who to blame.
2003-01-13 04:05:07 PM  
People would stop posting if not for the anonymity.

Pass the mint jelly.

And so Dar, with his trusty tiger curiously spray painted black, heads off to slay his pet eagle who finally got fed up with the bullshiat and ate the 2 annoying ferrets.

Somewhere Marc Singer is drunk and complaining that this man is stealing his career....

2003-01-13 04:09:22 PM  
I hope it was Siegried or Roy and they shoot one of them.
2003-01-13 04:12:04 PM  

I'm sure the mods can correct them once THEY'RE posted. Would you like them to correct your post as well?

I know admins can change headlines, since one of my submissions had an altered headline when it made it to the front page. (I thought the headline was funnier my way, but then I don't run this place, so who cares.)

I imagine the admins either a)don't notice because it's such a small mistake that's easy to miss after going thru tons of TF submissions, and/or b)don't care because they enjoy watching the resident grammar police (myself included) take potshots at the submitter.

So they're both mounting a lamb? I bet those are some pix that Townsend would like to buy--but only if it's a baby lamb.

Makes me proud to be an American
2003-01-13 04:20:13 PM  

The use of there in that post is perfectly correct.

You look silly now.
2003-01-13 04:23:26 PM  
It's the use of "their" that is wrong.
2003-01-13 04:24:46 PM  

damn you for stalling my grammar flamewar straight out of the gate
2003-01-13 04:24:57 PM  
Actually, Davel's way is right isn't it?

Anyways, I thought the poster was making a William Blake "Tiger" and "Lamb" reference from Blakes Songs of Innocence and Experience. But of course, he misspelled it, since Blake spelled it "tyger" What a tool.

2003-01-13 04:26:19 PM  
LawTalkingGuy- you have reaffirmed my faith that farkers aren't all dumb. Bringing up Blake= priceless. Same to you, Devotchka
For those who don't get it, look up "Songs of Innocence and Experience"

Innocence= lamb (little lamb, who made thee)
Experience= tiger (Tiger, Tiger, burning bright)
2003-01-13 04:27:04 PM  
they're is nothing wrong with looking silly. Right Tigger?
2003-01-13 04:27:43 PM  

I'd JUST got that hideously shiat Blake poem out of my head before you reminded me of it again. I hate it beyond measure. The only way I could hate it more is if Rosie O Donnell read it to me endlessly.

Good luck trying to find this dude and his pet. I'm sure it'll be hard to notice a tiger walking down the frigging street! Hey look, there's Jim with his elephant picking up fruit at the market, and there's Bill with his chickens selling off some eggs, and Mary's over there with a basket on her head with her goat by her side. And there's that guy with his tig.... WTF!!! DAMN TERRORISTS! DUCK! (Insert joke, no not a duck, it's a tiger)
2003-01-13 04:32:19 PM  
Did anyone ever do a metal version of "Tyger Tyger" a la Iron Maiden doing "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"?

Because I bet Creed could do a sweet version.

(Sorry Greek if I get complimented I have to quickly say something completely stupid.)
2003-01-13 04:36:37 PM  
Ho! Ho! What a splendid bit of literary reference, my good man! Pats on the ass all 'round.

Now why don't you all put on put on your berets and tweed jackets, and run over to to the New Yorker forums where your pretentious twittery will be fully appreciated.
2003-01-13 04:39:14 PM  

They like Iron Maiden at the New Yorker? I thought they were more Megadeth types.
2003-01-13 04:58:37 PM  
Sweeeeeet.. I wish I had a pet tiger... I'd name him Hobbes. :)
2003-01-13 08:17:59 PM  
shiat, down again?
2003-01-13 10:13:17 PM  
Police have released this photograph of the man, his tiger and an unnamed former lover:
